Happy Valentine's Day!
While this day is best known for flowers, chocolates, and Valentine's cards -- all very yummy -- we can spread the good juju far and wide by being the Love.
You've had those experiences, I'm sure. You know, when someone was incredibly thoughtful, considerate, kind, or loving towards you?
Or when you felt like you were the only person in the world because someone really listened or reflected back something wonderful about you (maybe even something you didn't realize was one of your 'gifts')? Or gave you something they made just for you?
It feels great to receive that sort of Love, particularly in our fast-fast, often-frenzied and too-critical world.
And it's fun to be the Love, too. We can all do that; it costs not a penny even as it (through us) spreads an enormous wealth on Valentine's Day and everyday.
A friend and I laughed about "being secret agents from Planet Bliss." Overt Love operatives. That kind of wakes you up in the morning, and feels playful, too (which is kind of key for me!).
So here's to you, and sharing the Love that you are, however it wants to express through you.
With Big Love,
P.S. About the Goddess of Big-Love & Luscious Sensual
That would be Venus, if you're in Rome, or Aphodite to the ancient Greeks.
Known as the Goddess of Love, Venus-Aphrodite represented a whole lot more than that. Love, yes, and also beauty, sensuality, true abundance, harmony, passion, manifesting in the material world (bringing Heaven to Earth), relationships, and what's truly valuable and 'of worth'.
Venus-Aphrodite leads us to what we truly value and what is truly worthy, including the value and worth we offer when we awaken and share our unique Divine Spark and gifts with the world.
In ancient Greece, some initiates of Aphrodite saw relationship as the cauldron of initiation and spiritual development, where, in conscious relationship that was devoted to cultivating the 'spirit of the relationship', we awakened our true gifts and our capacity to be the Big Love, which benefits everyone.
Venus- Aphrodite reminds us of the fullness of life and the beauty of the Mystery that is all around us. Talk about a healing-balm in a time when so many people are searching for meaning, and Love!
How can you awaken and express your Venus-Aphrodite gifts? (Hint: Mojo-sessions & the Feminine Mojo Mystery School can help you with that!)
